Well, you can define an "integer" divide as:
  a idiv b = floor(re(a/b))+i*floor(im(a/b))

If you cover the complex plane with squares build from the vector
between the origin and b, this idiv gives you the square coordinates.
>From that you can get the remainder which tells you the position of a
from the "origin corner" of the square.

Not sure if it's useful for anything though.
